I was referred to him through word of mouth recommendation. Turned out to be a bad idea.
He seemed interested in my case... until I paid my retainer. Once paid, he disappeared. I did not hear from him for months. He is impossible to get a hold of.
We had agreed on a retainer fee, but once he found out what I do for a living, the price doubled.
I agreed for him to represent me, and he pulled the bait and switch. I paid top dollar for him, not his straight out of law school partner.
In the end, they were no help whatsoever. It seemed like he didn't really care about my case, and his higher profile cases were more important. It was just another dollar for him. He could have at least acted like he was interested.
The outcome of the case was worse than if I had handled everything myself. He put off working on my case until the night before. Had he kept up with it, he would have gathered important information long before hand, and the outcome would have been totally different.
Mr. Sapponos helped me with my case and was both affective and precise. He has a lot of experience and was referred by quite a few people I know. My case was dismissed and it was all because of his great legal work!

Donald sapponos was not helpful at all with my case. He did not answer phone calls, knew nothing about the trial it's self. And showed very little interests. If the case doesn't make the news. He doesn't care

I retained Don Sappanos for dui/high BAC charges. Him and his associates did a great job negotiating a plea deal and got charges reduced to just an impaired driving which is an extremely tough task with Michigan super drunk laws. Would highly recommend him or his associates.

Donald Sappanos, after paid a retainer, does not answer telephone messages. I have been trying to reach him for the past 2 months to no avail. When I first retained him, a representative from his office met me in a parking lot to pick up the check. Then when it was time for my court hearing, another representative came to the court house for another case but said hello. When I went in front of the Magistrate, alone, I was told to pay the fine. Since that date in time, I have a need to speak with Mr. Sappanos regarding the next action to finally settle things with the Secretary of State. Until that action is taken, I cannot have my license reinstated in the State of Michigan. All I want is to have a discussion with my attorney to learn when he will clear my record.

Mr Sappanos Did a great job of Defending me on two Occasion. He Not only minimized my charges but also had the most serious ones Dropped. Most importantly He did it without taking me to the cleaners.
He was actually able to save me a great deal money with him and the courts. Many Thanks Don. I wish you all the succes
